Which Countries Produce The Most Renewable Energy?

The environmental effects of global warming continue to dominate as an increasingly serious worldwide concern. However, just as the frightening statistics reveal the true impact of climate change, it’s reassuring to know there are countries adopting sustainable ways of contributing to a low carbon future, to help slow down the devastating effects of global warming.

If YOU were to guess which country produces the most renewable energy, would you guess correctly?

Well, here at eCo2 Greetings, we’ve created an interactive map featuring the 131 countries who are indeed producing the most renewable energy and contributing towards a greener, more sustainable planet.

Which Country Produces The Most Renewable Energy?

Full data in this document.

Our map highlights the countries that are truly leading the way in sustainable energy by embracing and utilising natural resources such as solar power, hydropower, wind power and geothermal energy.

What is the most popular method of renewable energy production around the world?

Our research has revealed that hydropower is the most popular green energy method with a staggering 90% of the countries listed using water to produce renewable energy.

And unsurprisingly, due to the lofty costs associated with operating a geothermal power plant, geothermal energy is the least popular renewable energy source, with only 22 out of the 131 countries using this method.

So, which country produces the most renewable energy?

Did you know that Albania is almost completely dependent on hydropower for electricity generation? Yes, that’s right Albania actually produces a grand total of 7783.9 gigawatt hours (a unit of power equal to one billion!) of renewable energy. And it’s mostly generated through hydropower all thanks to the 8 main rivers that flow through the country!
